YEAR OF BIRTH (another one I forgot, and this one is my own)

Method of entering year of birth is different between iPhone & iPad (Android?); they have different allowable years - why not the same?

On iPhone the latest available year is 2000, so anyone creating a new account on iPhone will automatically be at least 19.

Worse, in 2021 (hopefully we’ll still be here), all new accounts will be at least 21 - thereby throwing off the <21 vote category (and any other fine-tuned age-related categorization SOH may do).

I hadn’t realized about year of birth selection, but the the age filter is terrible. It needs to be broken up somehow so that 40+ isn’t the top category.

SHAKE-A-POLL (another one I forgot to list)

Users have asked that the shake-a-poll feature be removed. With the Tap list, it’s not nearly as useful as it once was, and it’s easy to do by accident, thereby losing your place.

ANDROID (I have only a vague understanding of what the Android issues are, but I don’t want to leave Androidians out.)

Android users have mentioned numerous times that the app crashes a *lot,* including when they are writing comments - so they lose the whole comment.

iOS users, including Standard, no longer see ads. Apparently Androids still do.

One Android user mentioned that photo polls look blurry.

One Android user said there are ways to get around the Ignore feature - are they maybe different on Androids?

One more ANDROID issue...

Notifications have been *off* for at least some Android users for a month or so. This is probably a temporary issue and not an actual bug, but I’m sticking it here anyway. I’ve emailed SOH about it (8/30).

BUG LIST POLL: @Wert @jarod @omniku @paranoidandroid @GrandmaAlice @cpaswr @MrMilkDud @qmastrangelo @HammeringMan @4JC @MrsCrayonWax @voc @tony

Guys - Remember the project of compiling a *short* bug list for Tony? (I think everyone I tagged here was at least tagged into the earlier discussion; if this doesn’t sound familiar, ask me. But briefly, we wanted a relatively small group of people who had participated in one or more of recent “bug” discussions to try prioritizing the list of things that users had mentioned needed fixing etc., and to do it out of “public” view so that it didn’t get overwhelmed by “too many cooks” or too many unrelated conversations. So this, and the list, are posted in an old poll of mine that had few existing comments. If you lose track of notifications, you can get to it by searching “test poll.” It’s currently the 21st poll in the list that comes up, but I don’t know how to make navigating to it any easier.
(more... lots more...)

If you don’t want to participate, that’s fine. (You could let me know in that case, so that I don’t bug you with any reminders.) Do as little or as much as you feel like.

First, my sincere apologies for taking so very long with this. My brain function hasn’t been very good for organizing this, for some time.

I’ve made a list of most of the items that users asked for in several polls where the most troublesome “bugs” were requested. Some of these aren’t exactly bugs, but requests to have the same features on the iPad as on the iPhone. Some are tweaks to existing features. I left out some requests that seemed to be for completely new features, and a couple tweaks that would be nice to have but don’t seem as compelling as most items in this list. I’ll add them if anyone wants, though.

.

susanr Colorado
08/30/19 10:38 pm

I’ve posted the list - and it’s a pretty long list - as separate comments here, since nothing happened with finding an off-app place to discuss. (It starts near the bottom with “Long-comment truncation.” There are a handful of older comments, all in May. I picked an old poll of my own with the fewest existing comments.) (BUT IF ANYONE WANTS TO CREATE AN OFF-APP PLACE, I’ll happily repost the list there. I just don’t know how to do that myself.) Please excuse any typos; and ignore any places where you find a capital letter at the beginning of a header - my original list is organized with letters, and I don’t think I removed them all here.

Maybe you could just read through the list, and reply to each comment with something... either a simple Yes/No or anything longer you want (but hopefully including some indicator of whether it should be included or not). I believe Tony had asked for a list of the *FIVE* most important bugs, so a lot have to be eliminated.

.

susanr Colorado
08/30/19 10:39 pm

But I will try to tally the opinions for all of these and see what we get. We may have to go back and each pick our “top 5” but I don’t want to do that without an opportunity to comment on all of them. I’ll also tag Tony in case he wants to look at the whole list.

Oops, I completely forgot Android issues, except where I might have mentioned one incidentally below. I’ll put a separate Android question above, but honestly I don’t know very much about the issues so it’ll be vague. If you’re an Android user, feel free to list them as a reply.

I’d like to see some admins or moderators around here. That’s aside from bug fixes. I think it would make the experience more enjoyable. I think some other things that would help the platform would be the ability to search who you have in ignore, non current users, etc. a sort feature.

Weird. I didn’t get a notification for the first time you tagged me, on August 30. But I do like the bug fixes you’ve listed below.

09/04/19 6:07 pm

jarod - You’re on an Android device, aren’t you? Some Android users (not all) have said they weren’t getting notifications. I don’t know if that changed or got fixed. (If you’re on iOS, I don’t know...)

I’m just so sick of the level of venom and ugly “discussions” here. I don’t know that I’ll do it - and I don’t like it when people threaten to do it, so I don’t know why I am doing that now. Except it’s not a threat; it’s a desire to finish something I said I would do. I would really miss the people that I do have productive, interesting and/or fun interactions with here, though.

@susanr I just saw this. I’ve been on SOH less and less, too. As usual, all I can recommend is to avoid the nastiness when you’ve had enough.
As for the bug list, I think you covered it all. The biggest one for me is the “cut off” bug.

Also, the ignore list would be nice. And a list of users ignoring me :)

Image proportions in both picture polls and profile pics. You can scale and crop all you want, but the images always display in the wrong proportions, thus distorting the image. To get around it, we have to take images into editing apps to scale them ourselves.

In addition, supporting png, jpeg and gif would be great. Currently, it seems only png is supported. JPEG used to be but isn’t anymore. It will accept them, but the poll never appears once submitted.

On iPad, in personal messaging, fix the message entry field so it’s not hidden by the keyboard. Also, the the same field vanishes and the only way I’ve found to get it back is to rotate the device.

Make like counts start at zero on poll ratings. Also, if a poll goes below zero, show it as negative. Or better yet, only have a like feature. Get rid of the dislike feature.

Pizza night would be fun.

The main bugs I care about are standard ones... truncated comments, opting out of thread notifications, etc. Plus that it always says I have 1-3ish new polls when I actually don’t have any. It bugs the OCD in me!

paranoidandroid beantown scientist lady
09/04/19 6:59 pm

What’s driving good people away isn’t the bugs, it’s the general environment. I agree with MCW that a good moderator(s) *could* make a difference. I saw one user tell another to kill himself recently. Didn’t someone get banned for that in Tony’s day? I don’t know with free speech and all but enforcement of general rules plummeted when tony left.

So much is contributing to it but something has to change with regards to the general enjoyability factor or the app will continue to devolve with or without bug fixes. I don’t know if there’s anything that realistically can be done about it but I think a lot of us are considering leaving or scaling way back because of it.

FONT issues

1. Can you please switch fonts to something where a lower-case “L” doesn’t look exactly like an upper-case “i”? (And any other similarities where accounts can be made with user names to impersonate other users. Maybe 0 & O?)

2. Allow larger font size, especially in comments.

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
08/31/19 12:02 am

This is VERY important as it allows miscreants to impersonate others and causes a lot of hurt feelings and misunderstandings, and people even saying they’re going to quit the app!

PROFILE STATS

1. “Votes blue” was broken for a long time; everybody was 0%. Seems active again but inaccurate. Is it fixed? Do we need it? If not, could it be removed?

IGNORE - related issues so I’m grouping them

1. Many want a list of users they have on ignore.

2. Some do, but more *don’t* want a list of users who have *them* on ignore -anticipating negative behavior. One, however, suggested having a list so you can send truce requests (through another user).

3. Close any loopholes for getting around being Ignored. (I don’t know what they are.)

4. User can be tagged into a poll made by a user who has them on ignore, if a 3rd user tags them. One user suggests this loophole be closed. It has some usefulness so please consider carefully. Also, user who made the tag won’t be aware the user on Ignore didn’t see the tag.

GrandmaALiCE
08/31/19 2:11 am

I want numbers 1 and 2, very much.

I don’t want number 3. Here’s how to get around the ignore feature. Use the “share” option to generate a link to the poll on the web site. (Not “share with your followers,” the other share.)

Then, paste the URL into your browser. As long as you are not signed onto SOH on the web site, you can read all comments, but not reply to them.

I have found it useful, especially when I suspect somebody is talking about me, behind my back. You can’t reply, which is fine.

I have seen number 4 used maliciously in my own polls.

Belated...

1. Yes yes yes!!
2. No no no!! Multiple reasons.
3. There’s a way to get around the ignore still. It’s through the website. It’s been at least 1.5 years since it was though. And only one person would take the time to figure out how to use it so it’s a nonissue. Overall I say get rid of the website. Unless it’s already gone since the rules/privacy pages load but the main page doesn’t.
4. Never seen it or heard of it

BACKWARD NAVIGATION

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
08/31/19 12:09 am

I can’t even imagine what this means, since I’ve always been on the iPad the entire time. Sounds like nice things to have, but is not nearly as important to me as us not being able to see the question in the comments!

SWIPE TO DELETE - while writing a comment

Please get rid of it. It’s all too easy to do it accidentally and lose everything you typed. And it’s completely unnecessary as a feature, in that situation anyway.

Not important to me. I’ve learned to copy long comments to my clipboard, as a precaution.

susanr Colorado
08/30/19 9:43 pm

QUESTION menu option on Comments page

It DOES NOT APPEAR ON iPad. You can’t tell what the poll question is, or who posted it.

(This is probably the single most-requested item for iPad-only users. Not having that option is awful when you get a reply notification and can’t figure out what poll you landed it; it is even more awful if you get *tagged* into a poll you haven’t seen before; and it is *especially* even more awful if you get tagged into a poll posted by someone who has you on ignore.)

THIS IS MY NUMBER ONE REQUEST! I have to post the poll question in EVERY single poll I comment on! That is VERY frustrating and time consuming. Even MORE frustrating is when I happen to FORGET to post the poll question, and we get into a discussion and I can’t remember the exact wording of the question. This has caused more than a few misunderstandings and knock down drag outs! PLEASE fix this!

VOTING

Allow for seeing comments & results without voting (if poll doesn’t apply to you, but you want to see) (Some asked for *commenting* without voting; some just for *reading comments)

(This is a feature request that I know Tony said would never ever happen, and personally I very strongly hope that it never ever happens either, but it has consistently been one of the most requested features that I feel obliged to include it here, even though I’d like to just ignore it.)

NOTIFICATIONS

1. Notifications can cycle too fast, especially if a couple people go nuts in one or more threads, and some get lost. 50 notifications is not enough. Some suggestions:

a. Increase number of notification slots

b. Allow opting out of notifications for individual threads, or muting them (this was a very common request anyway, for when you get sick of a discussion)

c. Allow swipe removal of notifications user is finished with

d. Allow placing a “hold” on specific notifcations for set amount of time (24 or 48 hrs)

Tony never intended messaging in SOH to be full-featured, like a real messaging app.

GrandmaALiCE

However, clickable links would be great!

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
08/31/19 10:51 am

I know that he never meant it to be fully functional....but that has caused a LOT of us to go off app and carry on our convos there.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing, because it allows us to stay in touch with others if there are problems within THIS app.

But there are some that don’t WANT to set up another account to talk to people here, and they just do without sharing links. I’m in a situation like that right now. Someone wanted to talk about something privately, and I wanted to share a link with this person, but they’re not able to do another account, so we’re just doing without that convo.

And if SoH wants us to spend more time on THEIR app, this might be something they want to fix, as I spend a lot of time every day, talking to my friends from here on 4 other apps!

Of course, this is not my FIRST choice of things they fix, though. That would be seeing the question in the comment section!

..

GrandmaALiCE
08/31/19 11:27 am

Actually, as I recall it, Tony said messaging should primarily be to exchange contact info, so people could talk off the app. The idea was that people might not want to give out contact info publicly, so they could use a PM in SOH, then continue the conversation off app.

Susan, is that what you remember?

.

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
08/31/19 11:37 am

Yes, that’s what I’ve been told as well...but I don’t WANT to give my contact info to a lot of people that I want to talk to privately on SoH. So I had to find other ANONYMOUS apps to do so. It would just be a lot easier if we could do that within the app, instead of someone having to set up another account. But like I said, it’s not my top priority.

I’ll just add to what you said about number 3, GA. I’ve actually had to break down my 1600 polls into separate polls because I couldn’t fit it all in one question box.

There should be more categories available.

GrandmaALiCE
08/31/19 11:34 am

I don’t suppose there are enough Jews on the app to justify a category, but I have occasionally thought of a question I’d like to ask my fellow Jews.

But, how about this? Keep Christians and make a new category that combines Christians and Jews? That would be useful for discussions of God, the Bible, etc. - things we have in common.

How about targeting to geographical regions (a city, state, region)? Or targeting by age groups? We could brainstorm a lot of stuff.

.

4JC Christian Pastors Wife
08/31/19 11:43 am

Yes, Jews/Christians would be great in addition to the just Christians one. That would be one of my top choices!

Yeah, that sounds good....I’d like to know what people in certain regions of the country think from time to time....you could even make the same poll targeted to different sections of the country....to see if there are differences!

And the age range would be good as well. Another might be male or female.

It would be great if they would eventually set up the multi choice polls, where we could look at our results by demographics, but I don’t think that would be as affective as the SOH polls doing it, since we’re limited to less than a couple of hundred voters.

I AGREE WITH page
1 of 2: Groups - can’t switch from Most to Least; the switch is stuck (for at least some users)

Number badge for New poll list
a. DOES NOT APPEAR ON iPad
b. Can show a number when there are no polls in list. If that is due to “marked as read” polls, could that be fixed.

Error message “Comments must be less than 1000 characters and 20 lines” - often happens with fewer than 20 lines. (Maybe because of different line length on different devices?) Could the line limit be increased?

This one drives me nuts! Very inconsistent and confusing.

Long-comment truncation. (The end of longer comments may get cut off; the cut may occur at different places on different devices; changing orientation may or may not restore it.)

Mine too!!!

This is why I discovered my hack. I just wish more people would use it until it is fixed.

Testing to see whether the long-comment truncation error bug got fixed in the 5.5.0.3 update.

Comment appears in its entirety in both orientations on the iPad. On the iPhone - not so much. It's OK in portrait, but the last line does not appear in landscape orientation.

Not fixed. Nuts.

I saw “last line” on my iPhone 6.

What is this 5.5.0.3 update? A beta that was never released?

No, it wasn’t a beta. Either I miswrote the version number, or... I don’t know what else could explain it. Both my iPhone and iPad show the current version as 5.5.0.2. The App Store shows just 5.5.0; I’m not sure why.

It wasn’t a beta, because they hadn’t used the beta testers since November 2015. This poll was posted on 5/16/2017, which I’m pretty sure was when the last update was released. I was hoping the truncation error thing had gotten fixed - remember, that was the update after they asked in a SOH poll which bugs bugged us the most, and the App Store description claims this update has “Lots of bug fixes!”... So I was checking.

But why I called it 5.5.0.3, I don’t know.

Oh, I didn’t notice this was an older comment. I thought it was part of your bug list and that was confusing to me. 😊

But, the weird thing is, I *do^ see your last line of that comment.

Do you see “xx” at the end there?

You get an A for Adventuresome, or something. How did you even find it? I closed it as fast as I could, and it doesn't show any votes, even now!

I was checking something about the built-in targeting options, to answer a question for 4JC - it didn't even require posting a poll to check, but I stupidly tapped on Post instead of Edit, and boom, there it went... Testing stuff used to be a lot easier when I could use a nondescript account that no one followed so no one would see it, but now with the Tap list, it's just out there, until it gets closed.

Oh, never mind the query about the votes - of course that's a non-issue after a poll is closed. That also explains how my comment below got 2 likes with no votes, which I also just noticed, but I still wonder how anyone found the poll.

It sent me a notification that you posted a poll. When I didn't find it in the "new" category, I figured you took it down. I just tapped on the notification, and boom! Here I am! 🤠

susanr Colorado
05/16/17 11:22 pm

Oh, of course. I haven't had that notification turned on for so long I forgot that anyone else does. I really should use a test account when I'm testing, but it means deleting & reinstalling SOH twice. Not really a big deal, but I wasn't planning on making an idiot mistake. And besides, now it technically violates the new TOS. (Not that that really worries me.)

I'm an idiot. Ignore this poll, please.
